Creative Interventions with Traumatized Children Book Study, 2nd Edition

By Cathy A. Malchiodi

The book demonstrates a range of creative approaches for facilitating children’s emotional reparation and recovery from trauma. Throughout the book, experienced practitioners from the fields of creative arts therapies and play therapy explain and demonstrate action-oriented, creative interventions grounded in sensory-based neurobiology-informed principles and practices. Rich with case material and artwork, the book is both practical and user-friendly.

Participants will:

  1. Learn developmentally appropriate, sensory-based interventions that reach children in “brainwise” ways.
  2. Explore cutting-edge approaches in working with children and adolescents, including art therapy, music therapy, drama therapy, dance/movement therapy and play therapy methods that integrate expressive arts, storytelling, and sandtray.
  3. Learn new information related to creative arts therapies and play therapy in three areas of interest to trauma specialists: neurobiology and neurodevelopment; self-regulation; and resilience and post-traumatic growth.
  4. Explore case material and artwork as it relates to specific types of stressful childhood experiences including parental loss, child abuse, family violence, bullying and mass trauma.
